Germans using force and compulsion? No way!

"Don't mention the war! I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it!"
--- Basil Fawlty

Why am I not surprised at this account of the bureaucratized government's use of jack booted thuggery and compulsion from, uh, where else? And how is it that the people of Marburg can "not see" that this is for their own good and the good of the Vaterland?

Some volks just never learn lessons from history.

Also the Producers, I think, but I'm also high on absinthe right now. It could have been my goose-stepping neighbor.
